Johnson Hagood  Zorn set aside land on the old family Plantation to be used for a burial site for family members.  There was already a small family cemetery on the property but it was not large enough or accessible enough for continued use. Ruby Allen Zorn Jr. reclaimed the cemetery, identified the graves and replaced damaged stones.  The following is a list of all those buried in Flat Pond

as of August 2006.
